It was odd to have nothing to do but indulge in..... doing nothing. We spent alot of time swimming. The kids have become such good swimmers and are so confidant in the water. Especially Grace, who is a little dare devil. Barely 4 feet tall and 42# soaking wet, she insisted on not wearing her life jacket or her tube (which her mother kept insisting that she had too) and jumping into the deep end. Little wild child.We also spent lots of time reading.
And watching TV, which was fascinating to the kids. Being we don't have regular TV at home it took them a little while to figure out the commercials. It did not take them too long to figure out the garbage that was on all the time and there were no complaints about not having TV at home.
And of course waiting for the hair dryer was a fun game. After 4 days in that one little room we were all ready to go home to the farm again.
The weather was sunny one day so we spent a morning at the zoo. The scenery is beautiful driving down to Madison. This year we ran into lots of road construction. Cole was so cute when he finally said "I just don't get it, what do they want us to keep looking at over there?" We also got to stop at an amazing antique shop for a potty break. Ooohh Becky, I thought of you! We also stopped and bought some baked goods for the way home from this quaint Amish family. Their horse was tied up across the road~ such a good life.
